You wake up early after a great weekend spending quality time with friends out in the sun and getting stuff done around the house... tasks you’ve been putting off throughout the week.
You even had a chance to stop by the mall and pick up some new clothes, but that was last Friday, and you haven’t even taken them out of the bag yet.
Now that it’s Monday, you’re ready to put them to good use!
Nowadays, you look forward to getting dressed every morning. It was once such a pain in the butt, but now? You’ve got matching and putting together outfits down to a science.
Out come the new shirts, jeans, and pair of shoes you bought.
You decide to wear the new purple gingham dress shirt...
...which you immediately know goes great with your mid-grey wool trousers, navy sport coat with the patch pockets, and dark brown Allen Edmonds brogues. You literally imagined up this entire combo in seconds with no hesitation.
Your new shirt fits perfectly, and you can't help but laugh when you realize purple gingham isn’t a color or pattern you would have normally chosen just a few weeks ago… but when you were at the mall this time around, you were confident it was the perfect addition to your wardrobe.
You could instantly tell that it’s something you can pull off and would go with all the new stuff you bought, plus everything you have at home.
These outfit decisions that once took an agonizing 5-10 minutes are now done within seconds.
You can take a quick gander at all your clothes, put together a combination in your head, throw on that outfit, and continue with the rest of your day. No more standing and staring at all your options, paralyzed by uncertainty and the paradox of choice.
After learning a few keys to matching, plus how to shop smartly so whatever you buy goes with everything else you already own, your morning routine is finally a breeze.
Getting dressed every morning or figuring out what to wear to special events wasn’t always this easy.
Not being sure about what matched and what didn’t (decisions that are trivial to you now) once delayed you like crazy when getting ready.
Every time you shopped, you bought random pieces you liked and thought looked good, but didn’t stop to think about how they would work with your current wardrobe, which just made matters worse once you actually tried to put together outfits and were short on time.
You used to wrestle with indecision. You were never sure if the shirt you wanted to wear coordinated with your pants and your sport coat, and even on the weekends, you weren’t completely positive your chinos matched your shirt and your casual jacket.
You thought they looked OK together… but how could you tell for sure? You wished there was a way to know… you wondered if there was a secret formula, some way to have confidence in your decisions each and every time.
I asked a few EG readers to tell me what they struggle with when it comes to matching. Do any of these sound familiar to you? Maybe you've found yourself having trouble with the same things?
"For quite a long time I bought different clothes that I just liked but didn't think about matching them with the ones I already had. I ended up having shirts or jeans I never wore."
"Which color slacks go with what shirts, and what color should my sportcoat be?"
"I would say the biggest challenge right now is putting together outfits. I'm kind of thinking of just sitting in the room one weekend and figuring out combinations of coats, shirts, and pants with shoes and recording them to make it easier."
"It is deciding how to buy clothes that will pair well with other things I have... just trying to buy clothing that will produce as many combinations as possible."
With the lessons in this eGuide, you’ll be able to put together sharp-looking outfits in seconds, in ways you never even thought of before. You’ll also learn how to shop strategically, so the clothes you buy match well with everything else you already have at home.

WILL MCPRO HELP ME MATCH THESE SPECIFIC PANTS WITH THIS BUTTON-UP SHIRT? WHAT ABOUT [SPECIFIC ITEM OF CLOTHING] WITH [ANOTHER ITEM]?
While I’m not listing out every single pairing possibility (that would be impossible), MCPro is a very specific and detailed guide. It will help you understand and internalize the rules and guidelines of matching, so you can apply them to any specific pair of clothes.
By understanding these fundamentals, you will be able to take any item of clothing in your closet and be able to instantly see the outfit possibilities with the selection of clothes you have.
You’ll also be able to easily identify what your wardrobe is missing, so you can go and purchase these items the next time you're out shopping.

Don’t waste time looking for the right information. Pick up this guide, have everything you need right in front of you, know exactly what you have to do, and give yourself a head start.

It’s one thing to throw on jeans and a T-shirt and call it a day. But once in a while, you may have to step it up and look a bit more polished. Or maybe you're in a suit five days a week, and you're unsure how to dress casually yet still stylishly, you'll love MCPro.
Whether your definition of "dressy" is a classic black tuxedo, or simply a shirt that has buttons and a collar, you’ll find useful matching strategies in this eGuide.
We approach the subject of matching in a way that’s easily understandable and applicable. And since we cover not only color, but patterns, textures, and even outfit looks as a whole, you’re bound to have all your questions answered (and if not, I’m always just an email away).

It’s no surprise that questions about mixing and matching clothes are among the most asked (and most searched) questions on Effortless Gent.
There are countless resources, articles, and websites that help you pick out individual clothes, which is great when you want to buy cool stuff quickly and easily.

Could the way you shop be the issue? Or maybe mixing and matching is easier than you think, and you just need to learn a few key tips and shortcuts?
That’s why I wrote Match Clothes Like a Pro.
I want you to leave the house every day looking and feeling like a million bucks, and I know that starts with putting together a great outfit without the process taking up too much of your time.
